Title: Codex Alera Character Portraits
Post by: mraeric on March 07, 2019, 01:09:42 AM
Hey all!  Long story short, I got my sister into the Codex Alera series, and she got her work friends into a 'book club' to read through the series as well.  My sister happens to work at a large video game developer, and her book club included artists.  One of her coworkers decided to draw some portraits of several characters from the book series in their sketchbook.  I asked if I could have pictures of them all because I thought they were incredible and I thought you all might like to see some of them!

The first portrait is of Tavi and Fade circa The Furies of Calderon.

I have a few more excellent ones, but will wait to see if anyone even cares to see more.. not sure how active this forum is.  Regardless, enjoy!

Didn't like the one with Tavi and Fade much, but the rest are fantastic! Doroga in particular is a masterpiece.

I know I'm late to the party, but WOW, these are awesome.  Though that's totally Countess Amara there with the horse.

Iíd love to see more pics ;D

Your pictures as always are fantastic mate, keep up the gook work! :)
As for nudity, I personally don't mind, but lets wait for a mod to post.

Thank you!  Just for clarity, I did not draw these.  A co-worker of my sister's drew them.  Don't want to claim credit!   They are definitely incredible though.

Oh yes, I re-read the OP now, I'd forgotten. Still, excellent work from your sister's friend, although I did imagine Bernard a bit bigger. And thanks anyway for posting (Y)

They are just amazing *^* Thanks for sharing!
I specially love the one of Bernard, itís so dynamic and full of tension. Great work here!!
Do you/ your sisterís co worker have some pictures of Maximus and Crassus too? (Hope their names are the same as in German Ďcause Iím from Germany and itís been a long time since Iíve read the books in English but I remember some names have been changed in the translation  :o )

I am sad to say that this is the last portrait I have.  I wish I had more!
